Basic eukaryotic cells are composed of double-membrane-bound organelles (cell nucleus, mitochondrion and plastid and single- membranebound organelles (ER, Golgi apparatus, lysosomes (vacuoles), microbodies).
The secretory function of the rods has been described earlier (Clement & Wurdak 1991), and in the present study we confirmed this finding, where transversal cuts allowed the visualization of a dense region with cytoplasmic content originated in the Golgi Apparatus (Clement & Wurdak 1991).
Retrograde transport of cholera toxin from the plasma membrane to the endoplasmic reticulum requires the trans-Golgi network but not the Golgi apparatus in Exo2treated cells.
Some glial cells showed disorganization of the Golgi apparatus.
The Golgi apparatus is a well known staging area for all proteins that leave the cell, including hormones, antibodies and components of hair, bone and skin.
Typical organelles of a photosynthetic plant cell include the nucleus, vacuole, plastids, mitochondria, ribosomes, Golgi apparatus, lysosomes, glyoxysomes, and peroxisomes.
It is possible, since these epithelial cells are known to be secretory cells, that some of these vesicles may be involved in the transport of secretory material or membrane glycoproteins from the Golgi apparatus to the cell surface.
TGF-[beta]s are synthesized as pre-propolypeptides and then processed in Golgi apparatus to produce mature TGF-[beta] and its propeptide (latency associated peptide [LAP]).
Proteins and other cell products are synthesized throughout the cytoplasm of these cells and transported to the Golgi apparatus, where they are packaged in membrane-bounded vesicles that come to a cell's surface and discharge the secretion outside the cell.
This system, originally developed by Roger Tsien and his team, has already found many applications in cell biology and was recently used in conjunction with FPs to examine the behavior of the Golgi apparatus in dividing cells.
Members learned and practised aspects of working with spindle cells in the belly of muscles and with the Golgi apparatus, designed to achieve good results with minimum discomfort.
